Having sent out the Mayor of London and the Chancellor of Exchequer to forge closer links with China David Cameron is already taking inspiration from Chinese lawmakers about how to deal with the Police Federation in the row over Andrew Mitchell.
Mitchell was the newly minted Chief Whip last year when he tried to ride his bike through a blockade only to be told to wheel it by a police officer. Mitchell went into full Malcolm Tucker mode and retorted with a stream of obscenities that may have included the word pleb. He later refused to clarify what words he did use in a meeting with Police representatives.
The Government have now decided that swearing at a police officer is not an offense if you are one of the elite. In fact following China's lead anyone questioning this issue can be locked up without charge. They are also proposing to dissolve the Police Federation the union of the rank and file police officers. This will be useful to the Government in two ways it means they can slash police pay to the bones and take away any rights they have. It also means that they can force the police to make a pledge to uphold the Government policy and if they fail they will be made to vanish.
"Look we would be much happier with an armed man wearing a Tory uniform on every corner." David Cameron told the BBC this morning. "We have to make that happen. By stopping Andrew doing what he bloody well liked the police have proven to be anti british. We must cut the whole bally lot of them out and only have law enforcement that is loyal to me and my chums. We can learn a lot from China and the way they treat Human Rights as a menace to be stamped out."
